  1. Hermetic Seals for Chemical/Biological Protective Garments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD13109

    Interfaces on existing military chemical/biological protection garments are not designed to fully eliminate macroscopic and microscopic air gaps at folds, fabric surfaces, or hook-and-loop closures, and thus do not provide a hermetic barrier against exposure. Creare proposes to develop a hermetic garment closure system that seals macroscopic and microscopic gaps at interfaces and closures and pro ...

  2. A Low-Cost, High-Performance Colloidal Quantum Dot LWIR FPA for Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: CBD13105

    The primary goal of this proposed work is to develop a long wavelength infrared (LWIR) colloidal quantum dot (CQD)-based focal plane array (FPA) and show its feasibility when used in a camera system and a hyperspectral imaging system. Phase I results cumulated in the first-ever synthesis of photoresponsive LWIR CQDs and CQD-based photodetectors at the single device level operating at room temperat ...

  3. Reactive Structural Materials for Enhanced Blasts

    SBC: ASPEN MEDISYS, LLC            Topic: DTRA122008

    MATSYS proposes to develop reactive materials compositions and processing techniques for structural reactive composites for blast enhancement. This effort will combine our unique expertise in instrumented-Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) with new approaches in reactive materials design to develop a new generation of cost-efficient and highly reactive materials. The proposed material system will use a ...

  4. Design Automation Software for Biomimetic Surface Presentation with DNA Origami

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: CBD12103

    A development program is proposed for a design automation software package that enables the generation of complex surfaces, with user defined or automated definition of point charge and hydrophobic/hydrophilic properties, using DNA origami as a presentation substrate. Building upon Parabons existing software for DNA origami design, this project will result in software that can be used to design a ...

  5. Six-Axis Force-Torque Transducer for Mars 2018 Mission

    SBC: ATI Industrial Automation, Inc.            Topic: S502

    A transducer element that is hearty enough for a Mars lander mission needs to be developed so that a six-axis force and torque transducer is possible. The technical objectives are: 1. A transducer element capable of surviving temperatures from -135?C to +125?C. 2. The transducer element in objective 1 with temperature compensation to minimize span and offset drift from -80?C to +70?C. 3. The tran ...

  6. Advanced Deposition Capability for Oxidation & Corrosion Protection Coatings

    SBC: Directed Vapor Technologies International, Inc.            Topic: T1201

    NASA's long range goals of reducing fuel consumption by 30% and increasing fuel efficiency by 35% can be partially accomplished through increasing the operation temperatures of gas turbine engines. The advent of advanced alloys, coatings, cooling technologies and ceramic components has created the potential for significant increases in the hot section of these engines; however, these advances wil ...

  8. Ultra-Miniaturized Star Tracker for Small Satellite Attitude Control

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: T801

    Creare and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) propose to complete the design, development, and testing of an ultra compact star tracker specifically intended for small satellites such as the CubeSat platform. Our design is based on proprietary "folded optics" technology previously developed by ERAU for use in military and commercial optical applications that require a compact footprint a ...

  9. HybridSil Icephobic Nanocomposites for Next Generation Aircraft In-Flight Icing Measurement and Mitigation

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: A102

    The purpose of this SBIR program is to adapt NanoSonic's HybridSil® nanocomposites and combine high erosion resistance, low ice adhesion, and passive anti-icing functionality with Metal Rubber sensor technology to enable in-flight icing measurement and mitigation for next generation aircraft. During Phase I, NanoSonic successfully demonstrated novel sensor design concepts coupled with HybridSi ...

  10. Cost Reduction of IMM Solar Cells by Recycling Substrates Using Wet Chemical Etching

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: H804

    The goal of the program is to reduce the cost of substrate reclaim for high-efficiency solar cells fabricated by an epitaxial lift-off (ELO) process, and to increase the number of reuse cycles for a given substrate. If successful, this will result in a reduction in the cost of GaAs-based multi-junction solar cells, in which the cost of the substrate accounts for approximately 50% of the total cos ...
